Hurray!!!! My Marti's Mixed Media Market Site is now open for business. Click here to visit the Market and let me know what you think.
First of all I would like to thank all of you who have taken time to send me a message. Your comments are always welcome and very encouraging! Grazie mile!
Next, I want to display a new style of art I'm just beginning to investigate. The more I learn about abstract art, the more I appreciate the possibilities. I am working on a new piece which I hope to have ready for display soon.
and lastly, I am now on Etsy. If you haven't investigated Etsy it is worth the adventure. It is an online shop available to small businesses where only manmade items can be displayed for sale. Very interesting site.You might want to check it out!
Welcome to my new blog site. All your comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
I will keep a calendar of events posted and I will try to include some short videos of new processes or paintings I 'm working on.
I found my passion for art. Not only did I discover watercolor, acrylic, dye and yupo methods of painting, I also discovered my love of intense color. I believe the intensity of the colors I choose reflect the spirit with which I lead my life.
